tax advantage with historic preservation credits which i think were never used before in a manner that they were brought forward here and commissioner sugaya is the expert on that. it was a great really joyous moment to see this project come together as quickly as it did, so as many people think that can't do in san francisco, nothing can be delivered, this is proof of an extremely complicated project if you get the list of who indeed helped bring it about from the federal government, veteran's administration and on and on, i think we can all be proud of this project. >> commissioner antonini. >> yeah, i know there is legislation that's being introduced by supervisor farrow regarding condo conversions and as you know, there are many people who are already in tenants and commons situations often grouped with people they may not be really linked to and they are co-owners until such time an ownership situation is used, these will become individualized, i think has a lot of promise, but me *f my question is is this going to come before us for some kind of discussion in the future? >>
for the fiscal tax cliff and the spending sequester which i think is hilarious. they invented the sequester. we have had tax, spend and regulate policies for four years. why not try something different. let's talk about it with our powerhouse panel. jared bernstein, center on budget and policy priorities. senior fellow. doug holtz-ekin, peter suderman and james freeman, assistant editor for the wall street journal. james, i'm amoused right off the top. team obama starts attacking republicans first of all for the budget cutting sequester which they invented. second of all, for the fiscal cliff which they also invented. how silly is this? there is nothing serious about it at all. >> here we are. this is three years of big spending obamanomics. it's a terrible recovery. not what we need to create jobs. >> worst recovery since 1947. spending, taxing, regulating. we'll get into details. this report is not as bad as it's made out to be. >> i agree. >> the basic thrust is why not try something different? 2% growth is lousy, the worst since 1947 h. why not try something different? why not favor the pri
basically extended the bush tax cuts for those under $450,000, modified the state tax, moved the capital gains rate up to 20%, was that a good or bad deal for the american people? >> we don't know yet because what we did is half of the budget. the tax cut part of the budget. we didn't do how to pay for it part of the budget. the problem that we have gotten ourselves in to is people trying to do budgets as if the taxes and spending are unrelated. they keep talking about reducing the size of government with unspecified cuts or to spending problem, not a taxing problem. but when you try to pin people down on numbers, you find out that what they're talking about is spending too much money on social security, medicare, head start, transportation or even embassy security. if you look at the budget last couple of years, embassy security was being cut so when they talk about these cuts, without specifying them, you're not really doing a budget. we passed -- we passed a -- almost $4 trillion tax cut without an indication of how to be paid for. now we have the sequester kind of hanging over our he
in the reagan administration, they had 7.1 gdp growth. so they had the right fiscal and tax and monetary policies to turn things around then. i think those same principles would work today. >> there are two issues on the table here. number 1, what is wrong with the economy and are the policies correcting it or leading us in the right direction isn't other is the immediate response by washington. some in washington to the very grim news. americans woke up to feel extreme pain, learning that the economy shrunk in the last quarter and the first thing they hear out of washington is with leader peuloseet and white house press secretary, blaming the republicans and even senator marco rubio was quick to release a statement, casting the blame right back on president obama. but there is no effort to -- let's jump into this and solve this problem together. instead, it's immediately start the blame. >> you are absolutely right. one of the things we have to look at, how do we get capital flowing in the united states economy so we have growth and expansion of our small businesses. we look at our corp

at keorpt business tax rate which is the highest in the world we need to turn that around so we can create opportunities and get people hired and start producing again. another thing we have to be concerned about with this anemic almost retrograde g.d.p. number, you have a federal government that spending 25% of our degrees domestic product and that is going to increase from 30-31% over the next eight to ten years. once again, we have to look at the spending that is being done up in washington, d.c. here in january you see with the payroll tax cut that was taken from 4.2%, went back to 6.2%. you have a lot of people seeing that missing revenue in their state checks. you have eight new taxes from the affordable care act. >> greta: if i were a member of congress, i would hope the president or the white house press secretary, i would hope that if i woke up and saw a shrinking economy, i would think to myself, what am i doing wrong? i'm a political leader. i'm a member of congress or whatever. what is it that i am doing wrong. i would hope that my first thought would fire off a statement, sayi
. taxes and what we're going to do about the transportation trust fund. whether there should be a gasoline tax. whether there should be an increase in the sales tax. and wind. whether we should build a wind farm off of ocean city. and of course the big thing is jobs. he is going to talk about how the state has done a good job in creating jobs during the recession. >> let's turn now to charles robinson who is in the house of delegates chamber. charles, what's happening there? >> i am here inside the chamber. they are doing the the introductions. first and foremost, the mayor of washington, d.c. is here. that's mayor benson gray. there are five foreign ambassadors that are here, and they are always invited to see how democracy works. in addition to that, there are a number of individuals who are here who should be here who aren't here. i want to point out yesterday there was -- the county executive from an rondo county was relieved of his post after being found guilty. we're not going to have his replacement here today, if you will. i
about the gas tax. i'm sure you have all thought about it a lot. plenty of studies have shown consumer willingness to buy fuel-efficient cars is tied to lower prices and gas or i should say higher prices and gas. congress obviously is in no mood to raise the gas tax right now, so how do we deal with that to make consumers perhaps more willing to look at fuel-efficient models? >> an excellent question. who wants to take that? >> i will be brave. i think when i think about how do we get consumers -- it's nice to see you. we have talked on the phone a lot before. when. when we look at getting these consumers, for me it's about educating them on the total cost of ownership and what that means for them over the course of the life of of the vehicle, whether they are in a lease situation or they have purchased a door there is a 10% that -- it's understanding the total, and i also think -- one of my girlfriends lives in new jersey. they. they don't have to pump their own gas. they do it for you there. she moved and she was horrified. you have to put a value on having an electric car you can pl
. >> what about a carbon tax? >> well, it works out to be similar. i think, what is it? for every $10, it's about 10 cents a gallon, 8 cents a gallon for gasoline. so it's another tax. i just think we have to be very careful because it affects consumers so broadly, and there are unintended consequences. at the same time these advanced technology vehicles, as tom brought up, hybrids are going to have to compete with better and better conventional vehicles, and batter in electric cars, will have to compete with better and better hybrids. it becomes very difficult. it's helpful when the our market signals saying this is what society values. society values reducing carbon, therefore, therefore the there's a path, therefore there is an incentive or something like that. but very difficult to actually implement in a way that has become fair and balanced. >> i know that auto countries have been working to show that there's a very direct correlation between high gasoline prices and the selling of more fuel-efficient cars, hybrids, electric cars. and that's political "inconvenient truth" in the hig
of the things that we were determined to protect in that debate was the new markets tax credit, something that has benefited some of these kinds of initiatives throughout the country. so whether it was long ago and the low-income housing tax credit of which mercy housing has participated in over and over again and the new market tax credit, one of the current versions of the story. or the section 8 vouchers or the rest of that, public policy has played a role. but we can only be successful in achieving the funding for that public policy if we have examples of national significance to say this must be a priority. and it is a priority because mercy housing and st. anthony's makes people the priority. results. deeds, not just words. the words are important, but they are no substitute for making something happen from it. we all know the gospel of matthew and i was hungry, you gave me to eat and that is what st. anthony's has done. when you were homeless, you gave me shelter and that is mercy housing and they have come together. it's not just about food and housing, but it's about dignity and
from taking this legislative tax out of this five-page document into a detailed legislative proposal. they're. there are going to be a number of -- this bill could be several hundred pages long and we are talking about a very sweeping change not just in the legal immigration system but as well as how you deal with the 11 million illegal immigrants. how they do that in the hurdles that remain will be interesting to see how much they detail that. >> you point out in one of your stories at the vigorous debate on this since -- >> and we remember what happened then. this blew up in the senate after big push by the bush administration and a bipartisan coalition trying to get this through with opposition from both sides and of course creating amnesty but we have seen some of those going through muted in the initial days and we will see what happens when the legislative process continues. >> the gang of eight for four republicans and four democrats have put together work of an immigration bill and immigration principles. how do we find out that the gang exists? >> one of our reporters was th
? lowering taxes, corporate taxes, ensure people have opportunity. what did you think of those ideas? were they good? >> well, you know, i didn't look at every single one, but anybody that runs a companment -- company wants a clear playing field; right? less regulation, less competition with government, lower taxes. those are all the things that would help america be more competitive, but those are, against what jason just rightly pointed out where obama's economic policies, which are really social policies. he wants the country to look a certain way and be directed by the government, not by the private sector. gerri: that's true. >> so the bigger the government gets, by the way, the higher the unemployment rate is going to be. we see that -- gerri: that's true. >> we look all around the world, that's why we have such a high unemployment rate today. >> there's job opportunities of plepty under the president's nose. the keystone pipeline, shale gas boom, companies overseas to repatriate, invest domestically, but he's not interested. gerri: he wants infrastructure projects. >> they have a lo
start-up companies eligible for the existing research and development or r&d tax credit. and today i'm proud to reintroduce that legislation as the start-up innovation credit act of 2013 with our original cosponsors, as well as senators blunt, stabenow and moran. this broad bipartisan support i think suggests that this is a bill whose time has come. although we represent among the cosponsors very different parts of our country and very different backgrounds, all of us know that to strengthen our economy, we have to support innovation and entrepreneurship. each of us is committed to fostering the kind of environment that supports the private sector and which turns ideas into innovations, innovations into products, products into companies that help create good jobs. under current policy, one way we do that federally is by supporting research and development through the existing r&d tax credit. companies that invest in r&d generate new products which sparks new industries with spillover benefits for all kinds of sectors. that's why there's long been strong bipartisan support for the exi
the capacity to accommodate 100% of the demand, the job benefit and the tax benefit for the city would be greater. and with that i'll take any questions that you have, supervisors. >> thank you, mr. eagan. just, again, to summarize here. in terms of the financing. so, 70% is going to be paid for by the expansion district so 30% by the city general fund. it's going to create thousands of jobs in terms of both construction and long-term. i think your job numbers here, were these annual jobs? >> they're annual averages. they're different year to year but that's the average. >> 800 annual jobs in the construction phase. a little over 1200 fern netctionv jobs on an annual basis going forward. and the city's general fund will be technically in the black here, making money off of this? >> yes. >> proposal. and, again, with more commercial paper capability, it would be even more in the black. >> excuse me, supervisor. it's not necessarily true that the general fund will be. i'm counting the hotel tax as a whole. so, not all the hotel tax goes to the general fund. >> fair enough. i get where yo
with their taxes. the uncertainty was horrendous, the mood sour. we were getting all sorts of cross currents about what would happen with corporate and personal taxes. were they going to raise taxes, were capital gains going up? would the alternative minimum tax ensnare millions of people? would businesses have to start a whole brand new round of layoffs? executive after executive came on this show to say, look, we can't do a thing. what's the point? we will just have to undo it. business confidence plummeted, and the idea of forming a new business. well, remember when the ceo of paychex came on and talked about the paralysis caused by the cliff? who would leave his job to start a new business in that environment? okay. retail sales weren't that bad. but they nose dived right at the end of the quarter. retailers were afraid to restock inventory, figuring that spending would drop off the cliff right along with the nation's finances. it was all in all a very bad time for our nation. now, overlay the storm of the century for the northeast, one that shut down the wealthiest area of the country for sev
, melissa, to be very honest with you. you're right if we don't get our act together do something on tax reform and the social safety net americans count on. we'll have across-the-board cuts. why do it with congress. we could have a bunch of chimpanzees to do this. melissa: don't tempt me. you sort of stopped me dead in my trackses with that one. is something going behind the scenes that we don't know about? doesn't seem like we're not getting closer. at the debt ceiling with hemming and hawing but at last minute people got together. is it the same thing? >> i hope so. i'm working with a bunch the folks, part of the no labels group. republicans and democrats get together, talk about solutions. trying to figure out is there a different way to go. i don't think tax reform should be dead on the table. corporate america is really trying to get behind this. the committee for responsible federal budget is all over trying to get us to address the real meaningful issues of revenue reform in our country. same thing on entitlement side. a lot of americans want to pretend there is no problems with
for that money to come out of your tax refund. this year the d.c. office of tax and revenue will intercept income tax refunds, that includes unpaid parking tickets. the new law was passed by the d.c. council as part of a 2013 budget support act. taxpayers will receive a letter explaining how much of their refund was garnished and why. >>> environmentally conscious drivers could be facing a new fee in virginia. it's part of governor bob mcdonald's plan to fund the transportation project. as julie carey reports, today some hybrid car owners took to the streets in protest. ths the parade to protest a very unpopular feature. part of the proposal would require owners of alternative fuel vehicles to pay a new $100 a year fee. there are more than 91,000 vehicles in the commonwealth. >> tax pollution, not solution. >> reporter: they are slamming the fee as a hybrid tax. >> it doesn't make any sense to punish people trying to do their part. they want to have more efficient vehicles, they want to release less pollution, and it's just doesn't make sense. and folks are pretty outraged about it. >> some lawma
reform the entitlement programs, put tax reform in place, go through regular order in the finance committee as the chairman and others called for, to ensure we can get this under control. it's a commonsense proposal. we did it two years ago. most democrats and most republicans here on the floor supported it in the past. democrats in the house have also supported it, about 95 of them. it's a dollar-for-dollar reduction over ten years as we raise the debt limit. for folks who are wondering today -- the presiding officer: the senator's time has expired. mr. portman: thank you, madam chair. a senator: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from montana. mr. baucus: madam president, january 23, i think it was a wednesday, something marvelous happened. what was that? the house, on a strong bipartisan basis, passed a bill which would raise the debt limit, extend the debt limit to may 18. bipartisan. speaker boehner is to be commended. this town is criticized for its lack of working together, it's too partisan. speaker boehner found a solution to help us relieve the pressure
the debt, they would have been eager to let all the bush tax cuts expire. the cbo has shown that if we did that, debt as a share of the economy would fall to half in the next ten years. and if we were to leave the bush cuts in place, it would double. so, no, they're not serious about cutting deficits. they're serious about continuing to pose as the party of tax cuts for the rich. >> and i want to point out that just about an hour after we got the report on the gdp, senate minority leader mitch mcconnell gave this warning about government spending. here it is. >> this, my colleagues, is the europeanization of america. this is the pathway to greece. >> really? your thoughts on that. >> well, there is one way that we are on a pathway to greece. in greece they do not have an effective tax system, and people cheat left and right. we are starving the irs. i've been talking to people inside the irs whose units have been cut 30, 40, 50% in personnel, and they're not auditing, and they're not going after the tough cases that will mean the less money for the government and the less money for all gov
's valuable. we don't have a carbon tax. and the -- >> rose: is its carbon tax the way to go. not cap and trade, but carbon tax jathe difference between those are not that critical. >> rose: the idea is put a value on how much carbon you use. there are reasons are to do that. but because of the political realities, either one can be achieved. they both have the same effect, causing you to shift in making your energy in a way. >> you look at germany, and angela mirkle has basically sworn off nuclear energy. >> that is aa setback -- >> rose: you disagree with the decision she made. >> well, with the current generation of reacts, because of the fukushima accident -- >> rose: they're old. >> people are now worried about that. there haven't been that many accidents, so you can have a reasonable disagreement about the current generation. there are generations coming that are inherently in their design form is more safe. if you don't like today's reactors you shouldn't group all the ways of generating nuclear energy that will come out. you shouldn't abandon those as well because we can make
, both parties agreed to -- at that point to transition over to a sales tax based methodology. and one of the issues there was that the sales tax methodology was easier to do because we could not count ridership. we didn't have any way of tracking that ridership electronically. and, so, so, over time that number has fluctuated based upon sales tax revenues and how the sales tax revenues have fluctuated. so, for example, in fiscal year 2009 to 2011, the payment under this current form would be increased by 18% because of the fact that the economy had affected sale tax received that weren't received. we recognize the $15 million versus the contract value of approximately $2.6 million is quite a substantial difference. during negotiations we discussed this issue and we were very pragmatic about this. we did not feel that it would be feasible to transition to an amount like $15 million overnight. so, that's the feeder agreement. in term of -- those are the historical developments of both agreements. and now i'd like to walk you through the proposed amendments to the agreement. so, for the
to eliminate virginia's gas tax. he says replace it with a sales tax increase. the plan passed a major hurdle yesterday. a house committee voted in favor of it. a senate committee will discuss that proposal today. >>> virginia schools may soon get report cards, too. the house education committee voted in favor of a bill that grades public schools on an a to f scale. the house will now take up the legislation. the committee backed several other bills. one would create a board to oversee failing schools. another would require teachers to be trained in administering cpr. the committee also endorsed legislation allowing schools to create their own calendars and open before labor day. >>> home-schooled students in virginia will keep an eye on richmond today. the senate education and health committee will debate the so-called tebow bill. it would allow home-schooled students to play sports at public schools. the committee killed a similar bill last year. the bill is named after nfl quarterback tim tebow who was homeschooled in florida and allowed to play high school football. he went on to win the
